He drew inspiration for the American style menu in part from his love of classical wooden furniture.

"I enjoyed working with my hands, learning the craft of handmade furniture, while developing a passion for classic furniture construction. It is through this appreciation that I am honored to work with the National Gallery of Art and celebrate a craft that I truly love,"  said Armstrong.
